My thinking was that part of supporting ARM/Mac is to handle the new ASM, having access to a machine with the same ASM could make that easier. I was not suggesting support or setting a whole new build system, more how does couchbase work on ARM/linux. Iron out the bumps before Mac Arm become the norm, like I said that's a easier platform to get access too.
If you just want to play around with it yourself that's cool, but we wouldn't be doing anything infrastructure-related for that.
I did try this out many moons ago.
